In 2013, the Annular-ring Coupled Structure (ACS) cavities were installed to the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) linac. Since then, the ACS cavities have been stably running. Although any serious problem induced by the RF window had not yet observed, we decided to replace the RF window of one ACS cavity by the newly manufactured one. The major motivations of the replacement are to check the surface condition of the RF window which have been under operation for nearly five years, to confirm that the new RF window fully meets specifications, and to learn how much time is required for high-power conditioning of the new RF window. By making use of the summer maintenance period of 2018, we carried out the replacement. This was the first experience for us to replace the RF window installed to the ACS cavity in the linac accelerator tunnel. As for the removed RF window, there was no any abnormal warning found with the visual examination. At the resuming of the cavity operation after the maintenance period, we conducted the high-power conditioning in a measured manner. It took around fifty hours so that the targeted peak power was stably input to the cavity through the new RF window. The ACS cavity with the new RF window is now stably operating.

In the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) linac, negative hydrogen beams are accelerated from 190 MeV to 400 MeV by Annular-ring Coupled Structure (ACS) cavities. The RF input coupler of the ACS21 cavity, which is the twenty-first (the last) accelerating cavity in the order of beam acceleration, had a comparatively larger Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR) value than the other ACS cavities. Therefore, we designed and manufactured a rectangular waveguide which has a capacitive iris to adjust the coupling factor of the ACS21 cavity. By making use of the summer maintenance period in 2018, we installed the newly manufactured waveguide to the cavity. Consequently, the VSWR of the ACS21 was successfully decreased to the target value which leads to the critical coupling under the nominal accelerating condition with 50-mA peak beam current.

Low power measurement of a 1300-MHz RFQ cold model

Kondo, Yasuhiro; Morishita, Takatoshi; Tamura, Jun; Otani, Masashi*

Proceedings of 29th International Linear Accelerator Conference (LINAC 2018) (Internet), p.794 - 797, 2019/01

A muon linac development for a new muon g-2 experiment is now going on at J-PARC. Muons from the muon beam line (H line) at the J-PARC muon science facility are once stopped in a silica-aerogel target, and room temperature muoniums are evaporated from the aerogel. They are dissociated with lasers, then accelerated up to 212 MeV using a linear accelerator. In the current reference design, a 324-MHz radio frequency quadrupole (RFQ) and an interdigital H-mode drift tube linac (IH-DTL) are used for the low beta acceleration. We propose a 1300 MHz (L band) RFQ instead of the 324 MHz RFQ and IH-DTL as an alternative to simplify the configuration of the muon linac. In this paper, the present status of the design and the measurement of a cold model of this world first L-band RFQ is described.

Proceedings of 8th International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC '17) (Internet), p.2308 - 2310, 2017/05

In the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC), H$$^{0}$$ particles generated by collisions of accelerated H$$^{-}$$ beams with residual gases are considered as one of the key factors of the residual radiation in the high energy accelerating section of the linac. To diagnose the H$$^{0}$$ particles, the new analysis line for the H$$^{0}$$ particles was installed in the matching section from the separated-type drift tube linac (SDTL) to the annular-ring coupled structure linac (ACS). In the analysis line, the accelerated H$$^{-}$$ ions travel in chicane orbit by the four dipole magnets. In the beam commissioning, we directly detected the H$$^{0}$$ particles by using a carbon plated installed to a wire scanner monitor and indirectly detected the H$$^{0}$$ particles by using a scintillation detector. We also confirmed that the signals change with vacuum condition in the SDTL section.

The surface structure of the Li(Ni, Co, Mn)O$$_{2}$$ electrode was studied during charge/discharge process using electrochemical methods and X-ray/Neutron scattering techniques. It was found that during charge/discharge process the coverage of spinel structure increased. The spinel structure has low electrochemical activity and is not involved in Li insertion/extraction. After the surface modification, it was found that the coverage of the spinel structure did not increase. Further, it was also found out that the Li concentration at the electrode/electrolyte interface increased.

The effects of surface coatings on LiMn$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ were investigated using LiMn$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ epitaxial thin films with a thickness of 30 nm. Bare and surface-coated LiMn$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ epitaxial thin films were synthesized on SrTiO$$_{3}$$(111) substrates using a pulsed laser deposition method. The surface coating, which was formed using the solid electrolyte Li$$_{3}$$PO$$_{4}$$ and had a thickness of 3 nm, improved the reversibility of the electrochemical reactions undergone by the LiMn$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ epitaxial thin films. The changes induced in the surface structure were maintained during battery operation; in contrast, the bare LiMn$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ thin film exhibited structural degradation and Mn dissolution. The structural changes induced in the coated electrode and the increase in its surface stability were intrinsic effects of the Li$$_{3}$$PO$$_{4}$$ coating and improved the electrochemical performance of the LiMn$$_{2}$$O$$_{4}$$ thin-film electrode.

The PIMS used at Rokkasho Reprocessing Plant can quantify plutonium amount in each process vessel located inside glovebox by means of neutron measurement. Since the PIMS is not used for the neutron coincidence counting, it is very important to maintain that those constants meet the actual process condition. PIMS was calibrated in 2006, and then JNFL has been started to measure the Pu amount directly in each glovebox for the purpose of facility NMA. However, it was found that PIMS counting was unexpectedly and continuously increased during long time of inter-campaign. In order to find out the main cause, JAEA and JNFL jointly conducted several investigations. In the investigations, correctness of system parameters and relevant constants, behavior of the neutron generation when MOX powder is stored in actual glovebox for a long time (to see O/M and moisture change) and the behavior focused on the relation between MOX powder and light element using inside glovebox (fluorine is included in the PTFE which is used in many gloveboxes as packing of instruments) were experimentally confirmed using MOX powder in PCDF. As a result, since the same behavior happened in the actual PIMS was confirmed in the testing environment in which MOX powder coexists with fluorine, it is concluded that the main potential cause of PIMS is the increasing of the probability of ($$alpha$$, $$n$$) reactions by a contact between PTFE and MOX powder.

JAEA and NUMO have conducted a collaborative research work which is designed to enhance the methodology of repository design and post-closure performance assessment in preliminary investigation stage. With regard to (1) study on rock suitability in terms of hydrology, based on some examples of developing method of hydro-geological structure model, acquired knowledge are arranged using the tree diagram, and model uncertainty and its influence on the evaluation items were discussed. With regard to (2) study on scenario development, the developed approach for "defining conditions" has been reevaluated and improved from practical viewpoints. In addition, the uncertainty evaluation for the effect of use of cementitious material, as well as glass dissolution model, was conducted with analytical evaluation. With regard to (3) study on setting radionuclide migration parameters, based on survey of precedent procedures, multiple-approach for distribution coefficient of rocks was established, and the adequacy of the approach was confirmed though its application to sedimentary rock and granitic rock. Besides, an approach for solubility setting was developed including the procedure of selection of solubility limiting solid phase. The adequacy of the approach was confirmed though its application to key radionuclides.

ACSs are going to increase the beam energy of the J-PARC linac from 181 to 400 MeV. The 2011 Tohoku earthquake damaged the J-PARC facilities and the cavity conditioning was interrupted for two years. After the restoration of the facility, the two ACS cavities (M01 and M11) were conditioned. They achieved to 15-20% above the designed accelerating field of 4.2 MV/m. Since M01 was conditioned six years ago, the conditioning time required for M01 was drastically reduced from that for the first time. During the high-power operation for M11, which is an unique cavity equipped with a capacitive iris in a waveguide, no significant increase of the temperature and the discharge rate around the capacitive iris was observed. The vacuum pressure was sufficiently low (4$$times$$10$$^{-6}$$ Pa) even from the view point of beam loss due to residual gas scattering. The more stable operation can be expected through one-month conditioning before beam commissioning.
